Changes to your course

It is possible to change modules within the first three weeks of each semester.

We call this process `Module Add/Drop´. It means that, if you realise a module is not for you, you can `drop it´ from the list of courses you registered for and `add´ a new one in its place.

How do I add and drop modules?

Please follow the Add/Drop procedure as outlined on the SSiD web pages:

SSiD Web Pages - Add/Drop Information

Can I change any courses after the Add/Drop deadlines?

You can only 'drop' courses after the deadlines as it will be too difficult to catch up with a new one at that stage.

Please remember the credit and module requirements as outlined on our 'Registering for Courses' page and in your Study Abroad & Erasmus Handbook:

Registering for Courses Web Page

Can I extend my stay?

If you arrive in the Autumn semester and wish to extend your stay, you can only do so if there are spaces on the Erasmus bilateral agreement between your home university and Sheffield.

You need to contact the Global Opportunities & Exchanges to see if there are spaces, not your hosting department.


The deadline for applying for an extension is 01 November each year. Applications made after this date will not be authorised.
